Drawing the horizon.Scroll
Opening in November
Just wait until November. The new architectural hotel, restaurant and forest spa will open on 1st of November at 11 am. We invite you to experience the horizon with us.
A refuge in the forest, on the verge of vastness.
We look at the world from the treetops and see the horizon of beauty through the window. I have heard the magic of the woods whooshing through sprigs and branches, consoling the busy people. We are located at a serene slope, the most beautiful one around, looking for moments to relax, pause and the joy found in genuineness. Our hotel is an experience that blows you away – but allows you to pause.
Our landscape suites
Our suites are located on the forested slope of the Tahko mountain – at the edge of the vastness,
by the most astonishing views in the region.
Without ever making a big deal of itself, the silver wolf is fully focused on everything that might be overlooked in inadvertently in haste. Towards the skies our wolf reaches, showing us the finest of its heights. From the most valuable moments, deriving strength from silence and relaxation.
The landscape suite “Wolf” with its huge windows is a unique experience. It is intimate and warm, like a nest in the treetops. A view towards the lake Syväri can be seen from each suite.
The king of the forests whose den is the sanctuary of winter. The bear takes us to the land of dreams, where all the pieces fall into their places. The bear dreams of what the forest smells like and how the light plays in the spring, when it wakes up to the summer sun glittering over the lake Syväri.
“The Bear” is at its best when the lights play with nature. Windows in different shapes give form to the landscape and the life in the suite. The suite includes a bedroom and a large living area.
The moose's fur is wavy like the sky and warm like a flaming stove. Nobly it stands on a hummock looking at the most beautiful clearing in front of her. Gracefully the moose rises knowing the meaning of its greatness. To find and to be surprised. To experience all moments the landscape builds.
From our suite “The Moose”, you can experience the landscape to its fullest. It offers you huge windows and the warmth of a fireplace, the softness of wood and the vastest twinkeling of the landscape. The Moose stands on the proudest podium in the region. The lingering of spaces beyond the ordinary.
Forest Spa Lähde
Water has for so long awaited the moment of its liberation from underneath the rocks to allow it to meander freely through its own paths towards the vastness of lakes and seas.
Despite its flux, water offers everyone its time and solace. It knows that it is time to provide softness that has been here and there lost in this world.
The forest spa brings seasons near, for all of our saunas and pools are outside. Wood-burning saunas bring to their unique scents and sounds to the top of the mountain. It is time to live.
Further we see
Havu Kitchen & Bar represents Scandinavian purity that meets the Eastern taiga. To the days and nights, we bring moments that enchant, surprise and delight. On the top of Tahko dances a great flame that brings taste to our smokery and kitchen. We take the time to be special. The dinner memories created by us are, hence, more delicate and sophisticated.
We offer both breakfast and glittering dinner experiences.
